Pre-Game Report: Giants vs. Royals

The Vancouver Giants (27-21-6-3) will host the Victoria Royals (37-16-1-3) on Monday afternoon in a Family Day matinee at the Rink on Renfrew. The game marks ninth meeting in the season series between the BC Division rivals. Both teams have a record of 4-3-1 against each other this season.

The G-Men will look to bump a two-game losing skid after losses to the Calgary Hitmen and Edmonton Oil Kings at the weekend. The Vancouver power play has struggled of late as the Giants have failed to score on their last 20 consecutive opportunities with the man advantage. The G-Men now sit just one point ahead of seventh place Everett after the Silvertips picked up a 3-2 win over the Spokane Chiefs on Sunday.

The Royals have won two straight entering Monday's game and are coming off a 6-4 win over the BC Division leading Kelowna Rockets on Saturday. Despite the win, the Royals still sit 12 points back of the Rockets. Victoria sits in third in the Western Conference, three points ahead of the Seattle Thunderbirds. Logan Nelson has been on a tear for the Victoria club, picking up points in his last six games and scoring six goals and four assists over that span.
